Spent a few days in Port Washington, Wisconsin, only a few hours from Chicago. Lovely lakeside town, good restaurants and this delightful B&B. The hosts, Rita and Dave Nelson, were warm and welcoming and the breakfasts were all homemade, healthful and delicious! The B&B has been lovingly restored and furnished with antiques and reproductions and the woodwork is all original. On top of that Dave and his son make the most beautiful furniture, some of which is around the B&B. Comfy beds and close to the main streets. A nice getaway for a few days. If you like to fish, lots of charter boats available. We drove north to the Kohler-Andrae State Park - sand dunes on the lake. And took in a county fair.
